Apple introduces the iPhone X, the company’s most important phone since the original model. It comes with facial recognition, a completely new design and wireless charging. The Cupertino company finally introduced the iPhone X, a special version that commemorates the tenth anniversary of the iPhone and sets the stage for the next decade of the Apple phone.
This new model launches a new design in which the screen occupies the entire front of the phone. It is a Super Retina Display panel of 5.8-inch that improves all in all aspects to its predecessors: contrast, brightness, color representation, etc. It is also thinner, thanks to the use of OLED technology.
The new screen does not incorporate the ProMotion technology of the new iPad, but TruTone. This feature modifies the white balance of the screen to fit the ambient light and offer a much more real experience and according to the environment in which it is.
New 5.8-inch OLED screen and A11 Bionic six-color chip
Apple has dedicated a good portion of the keynote to the screen of the new iPhone X. It is a new 5.8-inch high-resolution OLED panel that promises especially vivid and vibrant colors. Apple has christened this screen as Super-Retina.
At the same time, the company has unveiled the name of the new generation of chips that will mount the iPhone X: A11 Bionic. The chip family, inaugurated in 2010 with the original iPad, continues to beat records of power and efficiency.
This new A11 Bionic chip will go one step beyond the previous generation and will add another two cores or colors. If the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus had four colors organized in two pairs (one for powerful tasks, one for less demanding tasks), the iPhone X will have three pairs. One for tasks requiring power and two for low-power tasks.
Hello Face ID and Wireless Charge
iPhone X Face ID
Apple has been true to its style of putting aside technologies whose time has passed. Technologies as relevant in its trajectory as Touch ID, which inaugurated the era of smartphones with functioning finger sensors. Now, with the new iPhone X, Apple aspires to repeat the move. This time with Face ID.
The facial recognition system created by Apple operates through the two front sensors, one infrared. It works day, night and with different elements in our face. Like glasses, beard and others. Face ID will also be responsible for authenticating our payments through Apple Pay.
As for the load, Apple makes the leap to the wireless world just like in the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone X can be charged wirelessly, in the same way that Apple Watch or AirPods are loaded. It will require contact, but it will not be necessary to introduce a Lightning cable in its corresponding port. Phil Schiller has also ensured that the battery of the new iPhone X will last 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7.
Animojis on iPhone x
Thanks to the two front cameras, the iPhone X is able to recognize its owner through a sophisticated three-dimensional scan. The same technology behind animojis differentiates between the real user and a photograph of him in two dimensions. You can also recognize the owner in low or no light situations, as well as being flat and on the table.
New cameras with Augmented Reality
If the iPhone 7 Plus inaugurated the dual cameras in Apple’s mobile phone, the new iPhone X takes it a step further. The rear lenses are positioned vertically with the flash between both and will allow new effects in the photos.

But the main dish will come from the hand of the frontal sensors, which in addition to serving new authentication system will allow to create animojis. A version of the emojis of always but that will be animated with the gestures that will recognize of the face of the user. Users can send this type of animojis through iMessage, a service with special pull in the US and other Anglo-Saxon countries.
